Monday Morning Brain Teasers: Take Three

It’s a beautiful Monday morning after a full day of much-needed rain. If you couched it yesterday watching football or movies, here are the Monday morning brain teasers to remove the cob-webs and get the mind moving. Have fun. As always, the answers can be found in tomorrow’s blog.

True or False – Corn was the first subsidized crop in the United States.

True or False – Witch Hazel (Hamamelis) blooms in the spring.

True or False – The fig is related to the mulberry.

True or False – Oak trees of different species in New England often cross-pollinate.

True or False – The largest known Asian longhorned beetle was found in Central Massachusetts.

The inspirational gardening thought of the day is by Michelangelo. “The greatest danger for most of us is not that our aim is too high and we miss it, but that it is too low and we reach it.” Annie’s remedy is to find your passion and reach high; stand on your tippy-toes if you must!
